I am currently a Chair Professor in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College London. Before joining the College, I was at the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, where I held a Senior Researcher position at the French Research Center CNRS.
I am interested in collective dynamics, decision
making and self-organization in complex systems coming from biology and
social sciences. The methods I use combine analysis, asymptotic theory
and multiscale numerical techniques. My earlier interests were in plasma
physics, rarefied gas dynamics and semiconductor modeling.
